A Norwalk man convicted of possessing heroin was sentenced Monday to six months in jail for violating his probation.

After Michael D. Dickman, 26, of 18 Amber Way, serves his time in the Huron County Jail, he will be unsuccessfully terminated from his three years of intensive probation through Huron County Common Pleas Court.

The defendant's conviction is for an Aug. 16 traffic stop by the Norwalk Police Department. Dickman committed the offense while he was on probation through Norwalk Municipal Court.

Dickman, at Monday's hearing, admitted he tested positive for marijuana, opiates and a third drug during an Oct. 15 drug screen at the jail.

On July 18, he was credited with serving 115 days in jail and placed on intensive probation. He was fined $250 and ordered to pay $40 in restitution to police to cover the cost of drug testing.

Dickman, in early June, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of heroin in exchange for the dismissal of a charge of possession of oxycodone.



I hope he gets some help for addiction ,he was a nice kid in high school .


Sure looks like that halfway house that "specializes" in drug treatment is really working out. That's sad, he really is a good guy. It's too bad that the powers that be where he was allow some "clients" to use narcotic pain meds and then walk around high as s**t and tempting every one of the other guys trying to get off the stuff. But no seriously they really do care about the money....I mean clients.
